Local NFL prospect in trouble with the law

CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, OH (WOIO) - Two people were arrested in connection with the Tuesday murder outside a Cleveland Heights bar.

Dejon Forbes, 24, was found shot in a car outside Sunny Spot Lounge on Noble Road. He later died at University Hospital.

Stephen Johnson, 28, is charged with aggravated murder. Antonio Longino, 23, is charged with tampering with evidence.

He will be arraigned Thursday. Longino is out on a $100,000 bond.

Longino graduated from Shaw High School in East Cleveland and went to Hutchinson Community College for one season before transferring to Arizona State, where he was a star linebacker.

Longino tweeted three days ago about Cincinnati giving him an opportunity.

The Cincinnati Bengals had "no comment " regarding the arrest of Antonio Longino. He isn't signed and they don't comment on players who are not signed with the club. Signees will be announced Friday.
